Time Warner Cable is bidding to play a role in the North Carolina Next Generation Networks project, a regional initiative to support educational and economic development by accelerating the deployment of ultra-highspeed Internet access. The regional partnership includes the cities of Cary, Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Durham, Raleigh and Winston-Salem, with the support of Duke, North Carolina State, UNC Chapel Hill and Wake Forest along with their associated Chambers of Commerce. According to Rob Marcus, TWC president/COO, “We have a long history of providing innovative technology to the state and believe our highly reliable, advanced network can exceed the future requirements of the NCNGN to deliver speeds of 1 Gigabit per second.”

— The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) published a new standards document, Recommendations for Spot Check Loudness (SCTE 197 2013), designed to help MSOs and programmers comply with Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (CALM) Act mandates. The document provides best practices for measuring the audio content carried in a single programming channel of a program network, aligned with techniques discussed in Advanced Television Systems Committee (ATSC) standard A/85, Recommended Practice: Techniques for Establishing and Maintaining Audio Loudness for Digital Television. It also provides guidelines for recording measured loudness and loudness metadata value as well as approaches for interpretation of the collected data and for actions to be taken in the case of discrepancies.
